Description

Here is an email from kepler user:

--------------------------------------------------------------
Running v2.3 on Mac OSX 10.7.3 Fairly new to Kepler.

I'm trying to use the EML 2 Dataset Actor to read in a local copy (in a folder on my laptop drive) of a sample metadata (.xml) file using the EML 2.1.0 schema and a simple 4-column data (.txt) file. I have checked the files using the http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/emlparser/ site, and both were validated.

Two problems:
i) If I change either file the Actor doesn't keep up with the changes. It seems to revert to a cached version of the file as it was when I first specified it to the Actor (via the EML File: and Data File: fields in Configure Actor).
ii) I wondered about checking the "Check for latest version" checkbox. However doing this generates an error dialog with the message "null Please enter a new value:" I have to uncheck to stop the error.
----------------------------------------------------------------

So we may need a feature:
When the "Check for latest version" box is checked, Kepler will check local files as well.
